I’m afraid the sickliness of the current season has interfered quite a bit with my ability to do anything other than work and sneeze!
But I still have several projects going forward. Eusebius’ Commentary on Luke is progressing – a third chunk arrived this week and I reviewed it yesterday. Likewise the translation of a homily by Severian of Gabala is in progress. I need to chase up the translation of another chunk of John the Lydian, tho, which should also be in-flight.
I have obtained a rather interesting dissertation via a correspondent. This is an MA thesis by Kevin R. Cole, Ritual and belief in the mysteries of Mithras. It contains a discussion of some of the literary passages. This includes one by Tertullian, from De praescriptione haereticorum. Yet I recall that a paper casting doubt on the word “Mithras” in that exists. It is infuriating not to be able to locate it!
